  • Maybe "\x{123a 123b 123c}" is a nice alternative of "\x{123a} \x{123b} \x{123c}". -- Grtz, Ruud

  • Can we have: say 1..Inf; to output an infinite stream, instead of just looping forever? OTOH, it would be nice if say substr( ~(1..Inf), 0, 10 ) printed "1 2 3 4 5". Flattened lists would still loop ...

  • In Perl 5, for (reverse @foo) { $_ = $_ + 1 } actually works. But reverse does not return lvalues, which means that: (reverse @foo) = map $_ + 1, @foo; does not do the same thing, but actually throws ...
